Moss Wreath

3 Materials
When the seasons begin to change, the first area of my home that I want to 'seasonalize' is my front porch. Not only is it one of my favorite features of our home, but it's the first area that greets visitors and that we see when we pull in the driveway.And I'm pretty tickled with the Moss Wreath I made. I decided to channel the whole 'moss thing' for my front porch this year and I love the simplicity of it. The lovely green of moss really sings of spring and all the new growth that is coming. The moss is vibrant enough to stand on it's own, but is also neutral enough that it should play well with other colors as the seasons change.And making this wreath was a REALLY easy project.What You Need to Make Moss Wreath:3 Moss Rolls (I found mine at Michaels)1 Wooden Frame(It does not have a piece of glass...it is just the wood frame)Faux Fern (found at Michaels. It was in a little pot and I just pulled it out of the pot)E6000 glueRibbon


How to Make a Moss Wreath:I wanted my moss wreath to have 'mitred' corners, so I laid it out on the frame and cut the moss at an angle at each corner.


By lining the next piece up against the piece I just cut, I was able to have fairly accurate cuts. But this moss is a little flexible, so if your lines aren't exactly perfect you can pull it a bit.


Plus, you can always go back in after it's all glued down and fill in any gaps with some of your leftover moss.Once the front was glued on, I turned it over and glued the edges of the moss to the back of the frame as well.


Twist ties helped hold everything in place while the glue dried.


I then just filled any of the gaps between the seams with the leftover moss and tucked the little fern into one of the corner with a dab of glue. I also glued some white ribbon onto the back to make it look more finished.


Once again, this was a very easy project. If you don't want a square wreath (is that an oxymoron?), you could find a round frame or even a wooden initial!


Now that this wreath is done and on my door, I can easily tackle the rest of my porch. I am going to echo the green and white of the wreath in the urns on the porch.
